I am not one who lives by my horoscope. I think that horoscopes are interesting and entertaining but I don’t plan my life according to my horoscope… However… today’s horoscope says:
“Your current interactions with others are the source of both good news and bad news now. The good news is that opportunity comes knocking at your door. The bad news, however, is that you might be so entrenched with what you are doing that you don’t stop to let it in. Opportunity won’t just stand there waiting forever, so jump up and embrace it joyfully while you have the chance.”
And, well… here’s the thing. I do like (most of) my new job. But it isn’t providing nearly the hours I would like and then today I got a call from an agency who has a contract job for, well, LOTS OF MONEY. And I told them to go ahead and submit my resume.
Now, I am not someone who is totally governed by the Almighty Dollar. That being said, I DO have bills to pay and things have been really, really tight since I lost my job in July so the opportunity to (FINALLY) make some good money is very attractive. Plus, it’s another MAJOR corporation name for my resume and it will help me when I need to do salary negotiations next.
What will it mean for my current job? Well, to be honest, I am not sure. *I* happen to think I could do both because I am not pulling anywhere near full-time hours with my current job. Plus, to be honest, I am having a great deal of doubt about whether the boss looks at it as a long-term relationship or if I am disposable and there are reasons I am feeling that I am, perhaps, disposable.
So, I had already determined that I was going to allow myself to be open to the possibilities that are out there and then this big money opportunity comes along… And maybe horoscopes are a bunch of hooey, but it does make me wonder what’s in the stars…
